No mention of return postage - came back in a standard Australia Post eParcel packet.

Earlier, I returned an S10e that apparently had some minor chips on the side casing and asked for this to be returned. It has now been...

I use the Spigen Glas.TR tempered glass screen protector. Flat, no cut-out notch, so it looks pretty invisible. The fingerprint scan is not...

Both on the body, glass was perfect. Didn't bother taking any photos, unfortunately,,but I will if they send the phone back

Sent my S10e back two weeks ago, got the obligatory 7 day and 48 hour reminder emails even though Australia Post tracking showed delivery....

Two units in the display cabinet at Canberra GPO around 9am this morning, if anyone is after one.

Both my 90 year plus parents who would be lucky to use 50MB a month and might make 2 calls in the month received this offer. Granddaughter...

Android 10 with One UI 2 has started rolling out to some countries, so hopefully soon in Australia.

Yes. U2 support was added in sometime in October. No U3 support yet

For those unable to get a free unlock via the Vodafone unlocking website and intending to use the SamUnlock tool. Be aware that on 21/11,...

Available through a number of different resellers, but the only one I've used is https://www.fonefunshop.com/sam-unlock-server.html
03/11/2019 - 09:30
Yes, that's the one

Knox is tripped/triggered when you *root* the phone. Out of the box, all the current Galaxy S and A series phones have Knox. If you haven't...

The Sam Unlock tool now does work with the newer bootloaders. Helped a colleague unlock one with a 20xx IMEI and U2 bootloader yesterday
31/10/2019 - 07:06
I've tried getting unlock codes from the Vodafone unlock site for the two U1 bootloader phones I got from Big W with serial numbers...
04/09/2019 - 10:19
Great! So we know now that those up to serial numbers starting with 14 are U1 bootloaders and can be unlocked easily. Those starting with...

We'll have to wait for some other people to report in with serial number and bootloader version.
03/09/2019 - 10:11
Are you able to check the bootloader version (see above - Settings / About Phone / Software Info - look up the Baseband version to see what...

NFC, B28 and Wifi Calling all tested and work well. I don't use Snapchat, but my daughter is an avid Snapchat user, and she says that the...
02/09/2019 - 21:29
This is purely a guess, but I would think that a serial number starting with 05 is an even earlier batch than those from Big W, and...
02/09/2019 - 21:25
If this is the same as the Big W version from two weeks previous, it has a standard Samsung boot logo, with no Vodafone customisations. The...

If you have the U1 bootloader, GBP 3 using [SamUnlock](https://www.fonefunshop.com/sam-unlock-server.html), there are detailed discussions...
02/09/2019 - 20:52
Yes. From the box outside, look at the IMEI. The IMEI has the form 356776/10/xxxxxx/y where xxxxxx is the serial number of the phone. If...
